Remember 2003? Jeff Carter was ranked 27th by the ISS, Richards was ranked 30th. Perry, Weber, Burns, Backes and several other stars were ranked even lower than they were.

To be honest, I trust the Flyers scouts probably more than I trust any other teams (except perhaps Detroit) ... I'm sure whoever they pick will be a fantastic prospect.
I don't really get this myth that Detroit has some great scouting staff. I think people tend to overrate them because of Zetterberg and Datsyuk. I mean don't get me wrong they were incredible finds but they were more than a decade ago. Their recent drafts haven't been that phenomenal.
